Aries! About Your Sign...
The spring equinox, March 21, is the beginning of the new zodiacal year and Aries, the first
sign, is therefore that of new beginnings. The young ram is adventurous, ambitious,
impulsive, enthusiastic and full of energy. The Arian is a pioneer both in thought
and action, very open to new ideas and a lover of freedom. They welcome challenges
and will not be diverted from their purpose except by their own impatience, which
will surface if they don't get quick results.
are courageous leaders with a genuine concern for those they command, being responsible
people, it is rare that they will use their subordinates to obtain their own objectives
as leaders, but occasionally it does happen. They do not make very good followers
because they are too "take charge". They may be unwilling to obey or submit to directions
for which they can see no reason, or with which they disagree. They are much concerned
with self, both positively and negatively - self-reliant but also self centered
(sometimes) and concerned with their own personal advancement and physical satisfaction.
Their immense energy makes them aggressive and restless, argumentative occasionally,
headstrong, quick tempered, easily offended and capable of holding grudges if they
feel themselves affronted.
As the first
sign in the zodiac, you, as an Arian (as you are referred to), is to simply "get something started and
lead the way". The Sun in this zodiac position gives your will free rein to express
itself. You could be doing this in the form of some leadership role, or by forcing
others to look at themselves in a new way. You can accomplish this by knowingly
carrying out a deliberate act in the name of some cause that moves you. A negative
effect of this sun sign is that you could sometimes unknowingly make
it hard for others to relate to you, as you really are.
In your personal relationships Arians are frank, direct and candid, and make enthusiastic and generous friends.
You are liable to have a high sex drive and make passionate but fastidious lovers.
There is, however, a negative side to your associations with other people. You can
easily be irritated by slowness or moderation in your companions and, though yourselves
sensitive, ride roughshod over the sensitivities of others. The intensity of your
sexual urges can drive you to promiscuity and a Don Juan-like counting of conquests
of the opposite sex. It can also trick you into early unwise marriage which may end disastrously.
Arians are highly devoted to their children, even to the point of laying down their
own lives, so that they might live. You will not find a more defensive and loving
parent in all the zodiac.
It is preferable to be aware of your pioneering spirit and not disregard it. For
in acknowledging it you not only enjoy life more, but you avoid being pushed around
by others. Your nature is usually push or be pushed, with little middle ground.
This can at times be objectionable to others, but you must have the freedom to act,
rather then just thinking about it, getting pent-up in the process. At all costs
you need to avoid negative emotions such as resentment, regret and self-pity, for
they would deny you what is essential to your nature: straightforwardness.
Mentally Arians are intellectual and objective, but can be in rare situations bigoted and
extremist in religion and politics. They are good champions of lost causes and last-ditch resistance. They are quick-witted but
sometimes foolhardy and over optimistic, lacking thoroughness and the ability to
evaluate difficulties in the undertakings into which they often rush impulsively.
The great need of Aries natives is to exercise an iron self-control, to discipline
the qualities and tendencies of their character to the advantage, not the detriment,
of the society in which they move.
As an Arian, you like a challenge that will stir you to action. This challenge may just be frustration;
or at a more controlled level, you may have clear direction and know what or whom
you're fighting for. If your direction is not clear, then ask yourself and listen
to your inner voice. You will come up with an answer. An Arian without a direction
in which to go, or a without a cause to fight for, would be against your nature
and make you more a "sheep" then a ram!
Arian, do not be afraid to be forceful, for this is the very core of your nature. If you feel
fear in your heart, then look for a history of negative events in you personal history,
such as violence or abuse from others. Being fearful may also indicate a household
in childhood that negated independence and personal initiative in you. This could
have inhibited your natural urge to go forward into life as the leader and champion
you were born to be. Conversely, such bad influences could also have led you to
be overly forceful, or to be unsympathetic to your own need and sensitivity.
You make good athletes and climbers, doctors, explorers (of new ideas as well as uncharted
territory, the latter in these days including adventuring into outer space), soldiers,
sailors and airmen, and leaders, though awkward subordinates, in industry and politics.
Much as you are the Ram, there is still the little lamb in you, which means that at times
you would attain your goals more easily by gently giving in without resistance to
the demands of a given social situation, rather than getting your horns entangled
in something larger and more powerful than yourself. This is a talent akin to knowing
the difference between what you can change, and what you cannot. This of course
takes patience, the acquiring of which is definitely your greatest achievement,
along with your sense of your own inner softness.
Possible Health Concerns...
Aries governs the head and brain, and Arians are said to be prone to headaches, particularly migraines,
sunstroke, neuralgia and depression. Indigestion and nervous disorders are also
threats to you, and your rashness, impetuosity and wholesale physical commitment
make you liable to accidents and physical injuries.
You like extremes. Physical, emotional and mental, and benefit profoundly by experiencing
them; but if your extremism goes too far beyond social acceptability, then expect
to be extremely lonely.
